crystaldots 's Thoughts:

Hi Chictopians!

I’ve been wanting to post an outfit post in a while, but haven’t gotten the chance to – in fact, it’s been a while since I’ve actually “blogged” about my happenings and whereabouts. Anyway, I tweeted a while back that I recently went on a Goodwill shopping trip. This Goodwill shop was actually 20-30 minutes away from my house (freeway/highway included)! So, I definitely made a trip there and I managed to score 3 skirts!

Each skirt was $7.00 (more expensive because this Goodwill was like Forever 21: huge and colour coordinated). This was my first time wearing midi skirts and I have to admit I was a bit uncomfortable at first – but then as the day went on, it was all right! This skirt has an autumn feel to it, and I didn’t know the rest of my outfit would actually complement the skirt so well! Yes, don’t be afraid to contrast prints! This advice extends from wearing pastels to any other outfit as well.

I hope you continue to follow your fashion explorations, too! You may end up with some good finds (and comfortable outfits).

Till next time,

Crystal

Goodwill comes color coordinated now? I guess it's good but in a way loses that 'thrifty 'look what I found amongst junk!" kind of feel... Ah well.. I love the whole print on print outfit you put together! I wish it was cooler here to pull off so many layers!

I've been hesitant with the midi-skirt trend as well, but it's so tempting because it seems most of the skirts at Goodwill or Salvation Army are midi...maybe that's a sign I should try it haha. But you definitely rocked the look and, as unexpected as it is, those prints look like they were born to mix together! =]
